    Default Problems with paragraphs switching to "hanging" using website variants

    I'm having an issue with website variants and just cannot seem to get around it. The behaviour I describe below also happens when I try to create a new style to be used exclusively in the mobile variant. All the paragraphs for the style in question switch to a "hanging" format and there seems to be no way to switch them back. Below is a detailed description of the issue:

    below is my paragraph in the mobile variant before I start:

    I want to make the test bigger. So I simply change the size. The result is below:

    I only want the text size to increase in this variant, so I right click and select Update style "Normal text" in this variant:

    And it does this to every paragraph on every variant that uses "Normal text". The paragraphs all have a "hanging" style:

    As mentioned, I thought one way around this would be to create a new style. So I undid all of the above and started at picture one again. I increased the size of the text, then right clicked and chose Create new style:

    Click image for larger version.

    As soon as I click OK on the above, I get the indent again (albeit this time, only on this single selected paragraph as that is the only one using this new style):

    I realise that I can probably get around this by using the Stop sharing variants options for the text in question, but I shouldn't have to do that. Besides, there is a lot of text and I don't want to be forced to be updating it in multiple variants.

    Any help appreciated.

    I was going to delete this as I was a tad embarrassed that a few minutes after posting, I found what I think was the cause of issue myself. But then I thought maybe this post might help someone else in future. The issue seems to be related to the size of the text box. It was too big. When I made it smaller, the issue was corrected.

    Regards

    Seriously, don't delete this. It shows how hard it is sometimes to "Think Xara". Seeing a problem explained and solved is how we all do it nad never in a stright line.

    I am very interested in the way(s) you were able to get things to speed up. Text box size? anything else that speeds things up? I am having significant speed problems when entering in text boxes. Thanks :-)
